"American-born Catherine knows little of her Croatian mother's early life. When Marijana dies of ovarian cancer, twenty-two-year-old Catherine finds herself cut off from the past she never really knew. As Catherine searches for clues to her mother's elusive history, she discovers that Marijana was orphaned during WWII, nearly died as a teenager, and escaped from Communist Yugoslavia to Rome, and then South America. Through travel and memory, history and imagination, Catherine resurrects the relatives she's never known. Traversing time and place, memoir and novel, this lyrical narrative explores the collective memory between mothers and daughters, and what it means to find wholeness. It is a story where a daughter gives voice to her immigrant mother's unspoken history, and in the process, heals them both."--Amazon.com.

The Immigrants' Daughter chronicles the growth of corruption, its highs... its lows, from the early nineteenth century, through the romantic 20s and 30s to the present egregious courtroom dramas. It uncovers the obscene abuse she suffered at the hands of her family and the California Court System. In her unrelenting fight for justice and truth, she found a love few have ever known. The immigrants' daughter created her own fortune from scratch and gave faith, hope, and love to others even her enemies. The author witnessed, in part, the corrupt, inconsolable crimes committed against her by her two sons, and Los Angeles and Santa Barbara Counties, which led to the most bizarre rape ever pulled off by California court judges. They stripped her of her good name, her reputation, her lifetime achievements, her entrepreneurship, and her fortune. A depraved woman medical doctor, fraudulently assisted by the Santa Maria District Attorney and her attorney lover, diagnosed her as having a mental disorder, then Dementia and finally Alzheimer's. They had the Santa Barbara Alzheimer's Association award her a scholarship to a Senior Day Care facility. In essence she was branded as insane when there was nothing wrong with her mental capacities. She did nothing wrong. She was then disqualified from testifying against the corrupt judiciary. This is her story!

Children in immigrant families represent nearly one-fourth of all children living in the United States. As this population of children has increased, so has their representation among children involved in child welfare and related systems. Once immigrant families come to the attention of these systems, they often have multiple and complex needs that must be addressed to ensure children’s safety and well-being. Culturally competent practice with Latino, Asian, and African immigrants requires that professionals understand the impact of immigration and acculturation on immigrant families to conduct adequate assessments and provide interventions that respond appropriately to their needs. Professionals also need to be familiar with federal and state policies that affect immigrant families and how those policies may affect service delivery. At the system level, child welfare agencies need to educate and train a culturally competent workforce that responds appropriately to children and families from diverse cultures. This book addresses these critical issues and provides recommendations for the development of culturally competent assessment, intervention, and prevention activities in child welfare agencies. This information can be used as a resource by child welfare administrators, practitioners, and students to improve the child welfare system’s response to immigrant children and families and promote culturally competent practice. This book was published as a special issue of the Journal of Public Child Welfare.

As a child, author Barbara Deotisis Luna De Acosta’s parents left her and her siblings behind and in the care of others while they pursued their dreams in America. Her story is one of a multitude of emotions and experiences, and she shares it all here. Her experience serves as a warning and a lesson for parents everywhere. She poses several key questions for parents who are considering immigrating and leaving their children behind: • Who will care for your children? • What kind of care will they receive? • What if something happens to the caregivers? Who will care for your children then? • How can you help your youngest children understand why you must leave them? • What is the emotional cost of your decision? • Is leaving your family behind worth it in the long run? For Barbara and her brothers, their new life was one of surprising fear—and more than a few magical adventures and scary monsters of everyday life. Theirs is a tale of both quiet patience and abandonment, of both unconditional love and neglect. She shares her experience openly and honestly, hoping to help other parents make a more informed decision when it comes to their families.

Many of us come from poor immigrant farm families and can identify with Tina’s story. Yet each story is different. Tina’s stunning story takes you at a fast clip from the early migrations of her Mennonite people from The Netherlands to Prussia to Ukraine. Her parents were born toward the end of the 19th Century in Czarist Russia, just in time to witness World War I, the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in St. Petersburg, the Civil War that followed, and the reign of Lenin. For most of those years in their Ukrainian village the Klassen family prospered. The collectivization and purges of Stalin followed the Klassen’s emigration from Russia to Canada in 1925. Canada is the setting for Tina’s birth and life. See how the everyday chores, child’s play, schooling, and Tina’s curiosity intersect with her family’s struggle for survival in this foreign land. The cultural and natural environment was not always friendly. Drought, dustbowl, the Great Depression, learning a new language and customs all took their toll. Although they were dirt poor, you will be impressed with her family’s indomitable spirit and fortitude. Tina is imbued with this spirit and ethic as she prepares herself for independence and service. Achievements and progress are rooted in humble beginnings. Tina remembers from whence she came.

This book focuses on new immigrant families from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) to New Zealand and investigates how these new Chinese migrants have adapted to NZ immigration policy regime, which does not accommodate their cultural preference to live as multi-generational families. The book analyzes a three-generation framework: first-generational immigrants parents, their children and older parents. It examines how migratory mobility and inter-generational dynamics configure migratory trajectories of individual family members and shape immigrants’ family life and sense of identity. The book also sheds light on how the different generations pursue their own interests and goals while maintaining family unity and cohesiveness in contexts of increasing mobility opportunities and constraints. Finally, the authors investigate how familial ties, transnational connections and a sense of identity and belonging being defined and redefined during the process of transnational migration. This book serves as a heuristic reference to and meaningful comparative parameter for studying family migration in other contexts. A significant theoretical contribution to the theory of transnational family formation in contexts where restrictive immigration policies result in members of multi-generational families living across different countries, this book will be of interest to academics in the fields of sociology, anthropology, race and ethnic studies as well as Asian and Chinese studies.

This new volume provides an interdisciplinary perspective on how intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, and culture shape the cultural psychology of immigrants. It demonstrates the influence transnational ties and cultural practices and beliefs play on creating the immigrant self. Distinguished scholars from a variety of fields examine the cultural psychological consequences of displacement among different immigrant communities. Cultural Psychology of Immigrants opens with a variety of theoretical perspectives on immigration and a historical overview of sociological research on immigrants. It then examines the racial discrimination of immigrants and the multifaceted influences on the creation of immigrant identities. The final section documents the pivotal role of family contexts in shaping identity. Each chapter illustrates the commonalities and differences among immigrants in the ways in which they make sense of their newfound selves in a displaced context. Intended for advanced students and researchers in the fields of psychology, social work, marriage and family therapy, public health, anthropology, sociology, education, and ethnic studies, the book also serves as a resource in courses on cultural psychology, immigrant studies, minority groups, race and ethnic relations, self and identity, culture and human development, and immigrants and mental health.

Examining the issues and challenges facing immigrants as they attempt to integrate successfully into Canadian society, Immigrant Integration is a multidisciplinary compendium of research papers, most of which were presented at the 14th National Metropolis Conference, held in Toronto in 2012. This book addresses the growing economic and educational inequality among immigrants and racialized populations in Canada and seeks to guard against further inequities. The authors address policy issues, newcomers' health and well-being, cultural challenges, and resilience in immigrant communities. Each chapter concludes with a clear set of policy recommendations indicating how those in government and the broader public, private, and non-profit sectors can help newcomers integrate, as well as welcome them as significantly contributing members of Canadian society. Thorough and relevant, this book includes the research of academics, policy-makers, and experts from a wide range of disciplines, including sociology, immigration and settlement, public policy, social work, and geography. With a sense of urgency, these essays illustrate the existing and developing strains that Canadian public policy has created and will continue to create unless built upon the evidence current research has produced.
